The shopping spree and a Highland wedding!






 We recently went to Scotland to attend my niece's wedding and even though I was off-island for a whole week I only managed one day's shopping. My expertise in speed shopping can be seen in the fine display of my loot spread out on my return. The majority of my purchases are from several charity shops in Cornwall topped up with a dash of finds from TK Maxx and a sprinkling from Florence and Fred at Tesco's. Much as I like to look stylish or quirky or trendy I really can't justify breaking the bank to achieve that when I'd rather save my cash for holidays and treats for the family. Don't get me wrong, I'm not averse to buying lovely designer wear, I just prefer to scoop up my Jean Paul Gaultier jeans on their second time around. Spending my money in charity shops also means I'm supporting a variety of worthy causes as well as diverting a quantity of clothes away from landfill sites. This way everyone wins and I don't have to suffer shopper's guilt to boot!

Dress : Monsoon (eBay). Shrug : charity shop. Shoes : M&S. Brass bangle : Rose Cecil. Rose gold bangle : Kate Spade, New York. Rings : charity shop. Necklace : Debenhams.

Congratulations to Lynsey and Mike
